Cone of shame...

Unfortunately Dares had to have a little operation. He was running about in the park and somehow tore his dew claw. Apparently it was so bad he had to put 'under' at the vets whilst they sorted it all out.

However I think Dare is actually more unhappy about wearing the cone whilst it all heals, rather than having the operation.



In case you wondered that is me at the 'bottom' looking for my toy which you can see (but I couldn't) poking out from under his chair...

Funny how Dare never got any injuries doing Flyball all year and then this happens just running around the park!

That's not the cone of shame, Dare, it's the doggy equivalent of the Purple Heart awarded to warriors hurt in battle.

Poor Dare, those cone's are the worst thing that can happen to a dog ... apart from a torn dew claw, that is. Get well soon, Dare, and remember that these things don't last forever.

Poor Dare! Injuring a dew claw is very painful! My first Cardi tore his and, wow, did it hurt.

Hope Dare heals quickly!

Those lamp shades are horrid. At Battersea last week I saw a brilliant collar that looked like a small inflatable tyre with a fastening on one side. Much more comfortable for the dog to wear.

Aw, poor Dare! Bella just got out of her cone - you might want to check out the Comfy Cone or another alternative. She still wasn't thrilled but it didn't bug her as much as the plastic one.
